Are you struggling to protect swimming pools in winters?

In some regions swimming pools get frozen completely and become useless. It is not uncommon for swimming pools owners to ask how they can protect their swimming pools.

We wrote this article just for you.  Our goal is to instruct you on possible solutions for protecting your swimming pools during the winter. In order to protect swimming pools in winters, there are a couple of options depending on the problem.  Here are 6 for you to check out:

1. protect your Swimming Pool Water

If you live in a place where you do not get snowfall, then the best thing that you can do to protect your swimming pool is to protect the water. You probably do not want the swimming pool water to get dirty, or even clean it regularly in winters. A pool cover is your first option. This way you will be able to protect the swimming pool water from getting dirty.

Before choosing a pool cover make sure you measure the dimension of your swimming pool, and make sure to get some cover clips. The cover clips will help you to tie the pool cover with the pool railing.

2. protect your swimming pool from being frozen

If your swimming pool is already frozen then there is no way to fix it.  Let the ice melt and do not try to remove it as ice has sharp edges which can harm you.

But if it has not frozen yet, you can first protect the swimming pool by removing the water first or covering it with a pool cover.  A swimming pool pump enclosure will help keep it protected.  Make sure to keep the pipe lines dry to avoid water getting frozen inside the pipe.

3. protect your swimming pool from Leaves of the trees:

Having a tree beside the swimming pool can be a headache. As the tree leafs or tree limbs continuously falls in the swimming pool water. Hence, as a result, you have to constantly clean the swimming pool.  The only solution for this issue apart from getting pool cover is to cut down some of the tree branches.

4. protect your swimming pool from rains

Pool covers do not work really great against rains. In those situations all you can do is pump out the rain water from your Swimming pool.  Getting a cover for the pool pump is always a proactive way to protect your pumps from getting damaged by rain.

5. protect your swimming from animals

You should protect the swimming pool from animals as well. So the best thing to do in order to protect the swimming pool from the animals is to build a fence around it.


6. protect your swimming pool against the wind

Wind this winter can be a pain as it can damage your pool cover. In order to protect the pool cover, get some water bags or swimming tubes to hold down the pool cover.  This way the wind will not be able to damage the pool cover.
